Pac-Man moving up to the big time... what say you VGF, has the MOMA made good selections for their display?

Who is to say what is art and what is not? Video games are art, imo.

If you define art as the expression of a vision through skill and technique then video games would certainly qualify.

Really, what the heck does it matter? So over this stupid debate.

This again? AGAIN? Really?

Well, in my defense, I did ask if the MOMA are making good selections for the exhibit. *laugh*

Yes, but it's not hard to get into the "this is art" category. Many things are art and aren't worthy of more than a moment's consideration or are just plain crap (e.g. everything I did in high school painting class.)

I liked the MOMA's selections. But I maintain that art sucks, and video games don't.

>>Are video games art?<<

depends on the person's point of view. to me they're not art, just a hobby and a form of entertainment.

No. Art is only art if it's tattooed on a fat guy.

people who only like games because of how real it looks, or judge a game in a negative way cause the graphics aren't good enough for them, aren't real gamers.

Sorry... thought that the MOMA having an exhibit devoted to the medium was interesting, and wanted to share. *laugh* Might have to stop by to see it at some point.

Everything can be called art with the right argument, therefore nothing is art. Except for art, art is definitely art. Dig?

DV the latest subject if your jealousy?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012, 11:47:54 AM PST
That's because DV is at least three things that McClane can't get: reasonable, well-liked around here, and a female.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012, 11:53:14 AM PST
I think that DV could destroy everyone in an argument.
